First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia ~ Welcome home!

Board of Trustees Update: We need YOUR input!

Spring is always a busy season at our church, and we need YOUR input as we move through this exciting time.

The Nominating Committee has begun the important work of identifying a slate of individuals to serve on the Board of Trustees and the Nominating Committee for the 20152016 church year.  If you're interested in learning more about these opportunities or would like to suggest prospective candidates, please speak with a member of the Nominating Committee: Luana Goodwin, Kitty Jauregui, Katy Morris, Anne Slater, Mike Tomalin, or Becky White.
Per UUA recommendations, the Board of Trustees will be surveying every member for suggestions on people to serve on the Settled Search Committee. The Committee will include 5 to 7 individuals elected as a slate at the Annual Meeting on May 17; they will begin their work this summer and continue through the 2015–2016 church year. Serving on the Settled Search Committee is a once-in-a-lifetime way to help contribute to the work of our church and the health of our congregation. If you're interested in learning more about participating or would like to suggest prospective candidates, please speak with a member of the Board of Trustees.
The Finance Working Group, Treasurer Michael Johnson, and Business Administrator Norman Fouhy have begun drafting the 2015–2016 Budget. Join us for budget hearings on March 22 and April 19 to preview the draft budget and provide feedback. The final budget will be distributed for approval at the Annual Meeting on May 17.

Mark your calendars for special "vision" and "mission" Sundays on March 22 and April 19. These "conversations in community" are an essential part of creating a clear, vibrant, and true picture of who and what First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia is--something that becomes part of the congregational record shared with potential ministerial candidates. These services will include 10 AM workshop sessions, followed by regular 11 AM worship.

I can attest to the once-in-a-lifetimeness of being part of the ministerial search committee.

Work?    Yes.

A Time commitment?    Oh, you betcha!

Fascinating?      Absolutely.

Challenging?      That goes without saying. 

If you are approached, seriously consider saying YES
